Trust: The Ultimate Test
Trust is the essential foundation of every relationship. And, in an organization, trust is fundamental - particularly given trends such as job-sharing, telecommuting, and virtual teams. The concept seems so simple, but how do you train on trust?
Trust: The Ultimate Test is a powerful tool for helping facilitators explore this sensitive issue - without arousing defensiveness. There simply is no other product like it available today.
